While my professional life revolves around Excel, Word, and a lot more Excel, I’m not-so-secretly a die-hard design enthusiast. After studying 3-D animation in college, I realized my fascination with design and art and my admiration for people who possess the skills to draw, paint, sketch, design, animate, and just generally CREATE.
